the invi security bracelet repels assailants with a viscous stink


to activate the bracelet, the wearer first unlocks a small safety clasp, then yanks hard on the leather strap. doing so breaks a concealed canister containing the company's proprietary stink blend. one whiff of that stuff is enough to give most muggers second thoughts -- and you enough time to make an escape or at least call for help.the company was unwilling to unleash one of these stink bombs on the ces 2018 showfloor (for obvious reasons) but described the scent as a mishmash of terrible smells. it doesn't smell specifically like rotten eggs, feces or decaying corpses, but is specifically formulated to instigate a revulsion response a company rep said. the invi bracelet comes in two sizes and went on sale today. it retails for around $70 and ships worldwide from the netherlands.click ..

jets fans, you have permission to dream of improbable run


why not?why can’t the jets make the playoffs?why shouldn’t they have their eyes fixated on seizing a postseason berth nobody thought was possible for them?because, when you take new england (8-2), pittsburgh (8-2) and maybe jacksonville (7-3) out of the equation, the rest of the afc is a muddle of mediocrity. in other words: the jets fit right in at 4-6.the difference between the jets being mediocre and some of the other teams in the afc being mediocre is that the jets were supposed to stink this season.on purpose.but the jets — with their head coach, todd bowles, fighting for his job and a roster of young, developing players who don’t know (or care) that they’re supposed to stink — never bought into tank plan.that’s what’s made the jets a rather entertaining group to watch...

(larry busacca/getty images for time)a fuller picture of harvey weinstein's alleged appalling conduct with women over the years is coming into focus now, thanks to an extensive piece from the new yorker that builds upon last week's blockbuster from the new york times. ronan farrow reports that 13 women told him that weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them. three say he raped them. and farrow obtained one recording in which weinstein appears to admit to groping a model.it's all extraordinarily hard to read (and listen to), and it's got plenty of big-name democrats donating to charity the money spread around by weinstein, a the top democratic donor and fundraiser.there are a co...






tony romo: ‘i know i’ll probably stink for a while’ in the booth


when tony romo first got his shot to play in the nfl in 2006, he was pretty darn good right away. but even he doesn't think that's going to be the case for him in broadcasting. "i know i'll probably stink for a while (in the broadcast booth). hopefully i'll continue to improve at that and hopefully get better and be good," romo told the fort worth star-telegram on monday in aledo, texas, where he was attempting to reach a sectional qualifier for the u.s. open. romo came up short, shooting three-over-par on monday. the former cowboys quarterback, who will be working with jim nantz as part of cbs' top nfl announcing team this fall, was asked if golf could fill the void left by football now that he's retired. "it's different. competition in itself i enjoy and, for m...

tampa, fla. — the giants didn’t have a catchy slogan attached to them heading into this year, the “[stink] for sam” jingle the jets had. but four games into this 2017 season, they have gone another way.they just stink on general principle.“we need to win a damn game,” ben mcadoo said.one of these weeks, they will, maybe next week, when the 0-4 chargers come 3,000 miles east to play the now 0-4 giants in a game that may conjure memories of 2003, when they both finished 4-12 and had battled for position, elbows at the ready, for the right to pick eli manning.the chargers won that battle, the giants won that war, which is a good memory in this time when it’s awfully damned hard to remember the last time either of them won anything. for a second straight week the giants fell at t...

hillary clinton has always been adept at blaming everyone but herself. her soon to be published memoir of the 2016 presidential election is no exception. it's officially called “what happened.” based on the excerpts reviewed so far, it bears little resemblance to what happened. i can only imagine the conversation that led to the publisher’s selection of such a beguiling title.   publisher:  hillary… we need to come up with a shorter title to your book. hillary:  what’s wrong with, “i lost the presidency because of sexism, the media, russians, comey, racism, xenophobia, the democratic national committee, misogyny, obama, biden, sanders, wikileaks, the electoral college, and polling data”?publisher: well, for one thing… it won’t fit on the cover. hillary: you wou...
